Meeting to intensify to collaboration in the implementation of the Pan-european action plan to protect sturgeons.
What does the EU actually contribute to our daily lives? Experts will answer questions and provide information on environmental protection, organized crime and much more. The event takes place in the shopping center Wien Mitte - The Mall. Thomas was part of this exciting event that was organized by EU protects.
Thanks to the EU’s LIFE program, Thomas was able to turn his passion into his career: protecting the Danube’s sterlet from going extinct. The film EU Protects – Saving the Sterlet gives insights into our project.
Like in the previous years we held a stakeholder meeting for fishermen. Part of this meeting is an information event and a taxonomy workshop on the different sturgeon species.
The association Schwemmland and the gfk invited Thomas Friedrich to participate at GOD – Garden of Disturbia in the industrial area of the harbor in Linz. The talk dealt which disturbances sturgeons have to face these days. Link: http://schwemmland.net/2019/02/god-garden-of-disturbia/
The Renature Festival took place in the floodplains of the Morava River and was also the final event of the LIFE Marchauen project. We released some of our sterlets, had a tank with some specimen at the festival to show the diversity and focus on the conservation of the sterlet in the Upper Danube and its tributaries.
We were also part of this year’s Donauinselfest, one of the biggest open air festivals in Europe, which is on top free of charge. We installed a tank with sterlets at the pavilion of the VÖAFV and “Hank”, a stuffed sturgeon, was residing at the pavilion of the MA45.
